Professional Div Mentors

Give chapters (local & state) a directory of Professional Division members in the area and encourage tapping in to the network for business expertise. Allow Professional Division members to create a profile that outlines expertise, experience and types of support that member is willing to give i.e. judge competitive events, mentor students with project, financial, etc.

Scholarships

There are many scholarships out there for FBLA members but when I do scholarship searches on sites such as College Board, they don't even have FBLA as an option for an organization.

Simplify the (re)Activation process!

If we take advantage of online payments, we can simplify the process and allow prospective advisers to re/introduce FBLA into their schools and business departments. To meet the needs of schools who may still need the paper form, we should keep it as a secondary option, however, the current process seems too time-consuming and confusing, ...more »

[UPDATE: IMPLEMENTED] Shortened Membership Recruitment Video

I really like our current membership recruitment video. However, the length makes it hard to put on the school announcements and other school media outlets. What if we had two videos- one regular length video, and one abridged, thirty second video? This will allow our chapters to better advertise and recruit new members by being able to choose between videos to suit their needs!

Middle-Level

Currently, FBLA Middle-Level conferences are held in conjunction with high school FBLA. However, maybe the National Office should hold a recruiting campaign to increase Middle-Level chapters, so that this can become a separate faction, much like PBL.

Email Blast List

Hi!

 

I was wondering if its possible to make the field of email addresses when we sign up members a mandatory field. Not only will ALL the members be informed as the President and Regional VPs send their email blast, but State Presidents could also have access to them so that ALL the members are more informed about whats happening around in the state and national level!

Golf Tournament as a Fund-raiser

Golf is a great way to raise money for the organization. Perhaps in conjunction with the NLC.
